I have been in the creative industry most of my life and involved with photography and other elements for several years now. Recently, I have chosen to focus on some new types of created images. I am going to be working on images of inspiration, love, compassion, imagination, heart, feeling and exploring emotion and the human condition.
I feel it is important as an artist to embrace things about the world and express ones perceptions and project it in visuals. Sometimes not even interpreting but redefining an image to provoke thought. I want to be an artist that does not necessarily tell others what to think but rather inspires to think and think for themselves or as a community.
If you are a model, actor, talent or just a creative soul that wants to inspire others, bring something new to the table and explore what it is to be human, an artist, a muse and a inspiration to others, then I want to work with you. Curious? Let me know your thoughts.
From classy family portraits to out of this world headshots, Bryan Crump can do it all. Driven by an overwhelming desire to express creativity, Bryan’s art is original and dramatic. With inspiration extracted from the world around him, the vibrant colors in a sunset could set Bryan’s heart towards a magnificent dreamscape filled with beings belonging in fairytales. Even a bowl of cold breakfast cereal might spark wonders in the mind of this artist. “I just want to inspire and leave people in wonder.” was Crump’s answer after being asked about how he wanted to be taken as an professional.
Although Bryan received technical training from a variety of different establishments, including Rose State College, Northern Ok College's MMDC Program, and service in the Army, his craft is primarily self-taught. Bryan Crump’s range of talents include the simplest editing and correction to elaborate modifications, effects and illustration; his skills with a camera are limitless.
“[Bryan] is so much fun to work with. As soon as you meet him you know he’s serious about his projects, but his sense of humor makes everything relaxed. He’s brilliant, there’s no other way to describe him.” Local model Lydia Nova said in response when asked about working with Crump. With over ten years experience with graphic design, Bryan is notably a dedicated artist. Having been featured on the cover of Oklahoma’s Nonzine magazine in March of 2006 and also the cover of the May 9th, 2002 Sunday edition The Los Angeles Daily News for his body painting works, Bryan Crump’s efforts to establish himself as a talented and innovative artisan have not been left unnoticed. Bryan's work is also featured in Distinctly Oklahoma magazine's Jully 2008 issue.
I like to inspire creativity and vision in others. When is comes to my work, there is always a storm of ideas that I weed through to get the best.
Starting out as an artist of pencil and paper, I worked up to painting and that eventually brought me to photography. Now I merge all of my skills as an artist to create vivid dreamscapes and enchanting portraits.
I am currently working on developing workshops and a few publications. One of my goals is to establish better networking between creative individuals, models, photographers, artists, etc.
I was recently introduced to HDR photography and have been dabbling with experimentation and techniques to get varied results for portraiture and commercial use. Bridal and Fashion photography remain some of my favorite subjects.
